in arizona, which the republican senator there, john mccain, has been holding in his home state. the woman who stopped the tucson, arizona shooter was there in the room when this happened today at john mccain's town hall. >> my 24-year-old son alex was murdered in a movie theater in aurora, colorado. these assault weapons allow a shooter to fire many rounds without having to reload. these weapons do not belong on our streets. >> i can tell you right now you need some straight talk. that assault weapons ban will not pass the congress of the united states. [ applause ] >> i said that was today. that was actually yesterday. john mccain's arizona constituents, you can hear them at the end there applausing boisterously at his ability to bestow some patented john mccain straight talk on that woman, who obviously needs it, that woman whose son was killed less than a year ago in the aurora, colorado mass shooting. that's the footage that was aired by channel 3 in phoenix. obviously, there was an edit between the end of the woman's question and the part where john mccain sneers the straight talk li
that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> joe, senator john mccain offered a different -- and this is -- actually, i felt better after i heard this -- he offered a different rationale for the republican opposition. it's personal. it's one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> oh, okay. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> oh, okay. >> you know, richard haass, for the 66,000 troops currently serving in afghanistan and for the families all across america this morning, i'm sure they're glad to know that we don't have a secretary of defense in place and we're not going to because of a seven-year-old political grudge. forget about sequestration. forget about all the cu
are facing major hurdles. senator john mccain says he may filibuster chuck hagel's nomination if the president doesn't get more information on the attack in benghazi and a hold on general renan if he doesn't get answers about the use of drones in the united states of america. that's an issue we talked about last week when i asked the chairman of the house intelligence committee that very question, whether he could see a time when drowns were used against american citizens on american soil. >> i don't think we'll ever get there. i think it's very, very important to understand that the legal justification for using an air strike against an enemy, no matter their citizenship, is long standing in this country. they no longer have the benefit of u.s. citizenship to protect them when they're on foreign land fighting the battle of the united states. >> earlier, i spoke with rand paul of kentucky and asked him if he thinks he is wrong. >> well, he didn't say no. what i want to hear from john brennan before i agree to let his nomination go forward, that no cia or the department of defe
if you want to give john mccain and the others the benefit of the doubt. they're national heroes and they think it's markers for things like the iraq surge. it's all bundled together. if you're not in the right place on that, you're not a true national hero stewarding the interests of the country in the right way. the deeper thing is this is a time where the other side really just wants to tear down the president anyway they can and to do it viciously every day over and over again and not be about constructive solutions. now, i happen to be one who doesn't think john mccain and even lindsey graham are really about that, but i think that the ted cruzs and inhofes are. >> cruz is voting against everybody. >> i think it's -- the petty slander. we've got to call it what it is. there is a game of slander that's coming out of u.s. senate offices today in a way that we haven't seen in generations. that's what we should be worried about. >> we saw the staffer who said we're going to prove he's an anti-semite. >> right. friends of hamas. >> peter, i know you're a high level policy analyst
she takes more money from lobbyists and special interests than any candidate, including john mccain, that shows that she doesn't have a sense that we've got to change our business is done in washington. >> ultimately, what i'd like to see is a system of public financing of campaigns and i'm a co-sponsor of the proposal that's in the senate right now. that's what we have to fight for. >> that was candidate obama during the 2010 campaign. the president railed against super pacs, then made an end justifies the means argument in 2012. look, the obama folks can rationalize this all they want. yes, they'll disclose donors and they'll be accepting small donor money but this is the campaign finance world we live in after citizens united. but offering this kind of access to big donors was precisely what bovm w obama was campaigning against in 2007 and 2008. every political strategist involved in the campaign told us on this show, both sides of the aisle, they all believe the campaign finance system is a mess, yet we continue to see a perpetuation of the so-called flawed system like what we s
no evidence of. you have john mccain coming to chuck hagel's defense. >> good for john mccain. >> good for john mccain. you have stepped over the line. >> there's been a pattern with the hagel debate of people going beyond legitimate public debate. we saw it on the charges of anti-semitism. now illegal money or whatever. there's a legitimate debate to have about chuck hagel or any other nominee. this is way past that. but there's an irony here. hagel, in part, got this nomination in order to bridge the partisan divide. it was supposed to be someone who would appeal to republicans. instead he gets reported out with a straight party-line vote. no republicans supporting him. this cannot be what anyone in washington intended. >> i know. john heilemann, i hate to keep bringing him up because i hate bringing up somebody simply for bad behavior, but i'm absolutely flummoxed by ted cruz's short-term and long-term political strategy. you know, mark halperin told me before he got sworn in, he was a very smart guy, a bright guy, a harvard lawyer. i just don't -- this is a guy that could have such
, senator john mccain is alleging a massive cover-up on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> so it's the state department's fault? who would you blame? who is responsible then? i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare.

think, i think conservatives are going to win just as they did with john mccain on amnesty for illegals, but not if they're too demoralized to call their congressman and write their senators, we're probably not going to like obama's cabinet nominees over the next few years. we still have 2014 and republicans who hold the house and we may pick up the senate. but don't be demoralized republicans, and it's curious how the gun debate started and this time it's different, we're pushing gun control and a few weeks go by and it seems to have kind of petered out. same thing with amnesty. >> sean: and he's a -- he's a pediatric neuro surgeon, and he was the guy that confronted obama over medical savings accounts, the debt, the deficit and i'm watching his speech and then i interviewed him and i'm thinking why don't republicans say what he's saying? because it's common sense. >> right. >> sean: it's appealing. it resonates. >> right, and-- >> why is he saying these things? >> it was magnificent and you say he confronted obama over these things. it wasn't confrontational, it was pure common sense
that even john mccain who lamb basted hagel a week ago came to the senator's defense. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> that's what cruz was doing. and john boehner couldn't stick to the script today for the softer, gentler, kinder gop. he told reporters at a breakfast briefing that obama doesn't have -- this is the new phrase. he doesn't have the guts to cut spending. today more republican intransigents are holding up again by demanding the speaker -- actually harry reid from nevada come up with 60 votes to move forward the vote. and senator rand paul put a hold on president obama's pick. joining me now is salon's joan walsh and washington post's dana milbank. they can't beat these people so they're doing this obstructing. they're trying to smear this guy. they know he's going to be secretary of defense. there is absolutely no purpose in what cruz is doing except trying to move he's more obnoxious than neocons are. they're just messing around with the government of t
, john mccain's changing his tune. we praised him yesterday. so he had to reverse course, i guess. so now he's talking about possibly delaying chuck hagel's nomination. and also wayne lapierre. this is very important. because if you look at the profiles of all the people that committed these mass murders in newtown and aurora and across -- virginia tech, they are all hispanic drug gang leaders. and that's exactly what wayne lapierre said in an op-ed that americans need to buy guns because those latin americans are coming to america, and they're going to kill you people. this is who a lot of republicans in congress are thinking about falling off -- don't do it. don't hurt our party anymore. let wayne lapierre go wherever he wants to go. he's going to destroy the party. we're going to talk about the crazy op-ed has horrible for our party's image, horrible for the conservative movement's image, goes against everything ronald reagan stood for. we'll talk about that in a minute. first, breaking news. this is bizarre. the feel-good story of the olympic games involved in possibly murder. >> this
they wouldn't block hagel, like john mccain, reversed themselves. demanding next week's senate recess to study the nomination and ask for questions. >> i think during the break, it is sufficient time to get any additional questions answered, and i will vote in favor of cloture on the date we get back, and i believe my colleagues would also -- a number of my colleagues would do the same. >> another vote to try to stop the hagel filibuster is already on the schedule a little less than two week from now. hagel should be confirmed as the next defense secretary after a very tough time from former colleagues in the senate. >>> home at last. the 4,200 people stranded on that crippled carnival cruiseship are on land.

john mccain, lindsey graham and marco rubio who just last weekend called the president's plan, quote, half-baked and seriously flawed. the president told those senators he shares their commitment to overhauling u.s. policy. after the call, senator rubio's office put out a statement that reads, in part, "the senator told the president he feels good about the ongoing negotiations in the senate, and is hopeful the final product is something that can pass the senate with strong bipartisan support." senator mccain spent the day in town halls in arizona. the senator encountered crowds who made their anger known about the state of immigration in america and particularly in arizona. >> why didn't the army go down there and stop them? because the only thing that stops them, i'm afraid to say, and it's too damn bad, but is a gun. that's all that will stop them. >> the border is 2,000 miles long, sir. i don't know how many troops and army people you think would have been required. i don't know how many you think would be required, but i'll give you expert information that shows you that probabl

and john mccain were pitching around in 2008, which is a promise to change all the delete of cars. the reason we can't get substantive climate change is because we can't convince the car industry that it makes sense financially. obama can do a lot. he should do something that provides jobs and cleans the air, not just talk policy. >> that sounds so simple, anna. >> it sounds simple, but it's not. good luck trying to pass any legislation through congress that doesn't come from congress. right now some of the controversial issues that stand a glimmer of hope are immigration and some aspects of gun control. in congress themselves they have found common ground and are pushing it themselves. unfortunately the reality is that president obama right now has the reverse midas touch. everything he touches turns to dirt. >> everything turns to dirt, pete? >> well, listen. i would first ask for everybody to put up their hands on this panel if they believe is man is the biggest factk factor contributing to climate change. no, we're not all putting our hands up? >> that is what is sad about thi
